New Recruit
Altrix has been recruited to LDDK. Welcome!
New gear
On the 19th November 2018, the detachment was given its' new gear for the first time and it was immediately put into good use. On a mission “The owl is watching”, LDDK conducted several successful raids to help the local authorities and the UN-led mission in the island of Altis.

Airborne operations went smoothly and the locals gave LDDK credit for reliably taking out the enemy threat in the area and saving a number of innocent civilian lives. The detachment can be satisfied with the result, especially since the seasoned veterans were supplemented by new recruits who want to be part of the outstanding community.

LDDK conducts challenging internal Arma 3-operations on every Sunday during the winter season. Open missions for the public are available on Fridays at 2030.

LDDK's Open Coop Campaign Continues

Operation Homeland Liberation continues.

By the order of President Donald Trump the United States Armed Forces have occupied our home island of Altis only to replace the standing government with the American president's own twisted version. Claiming that the occupation is due to corruption in our government, the invaders are quite clearly interested in only the vast lithium deposits in our soil.

Our task is to take back our homeland and help the elected government back to power. The campaign started in November 2017 with large-scale artillery strikes and landing operations, and we have secured a foothold on the island.

The campaign is open for all Finnish-speaking players. Sign up now on our Discord channel!

Squad Meeting in Ostrobothnia

A traditional squad meeting in Kannus, Central Ostrobothnia, was held in the beginning of March. Time was well spent playing board, card and sauna games while enjoying refreshments and delicacies. Local cuisine, habits and leisure time activities were once again met with fascination and awe. Even without an active officer present, the participants maintained squad ethos and etiquette par excellence.

Ylik Charlie Frank, kers Haba, Scottz and Kuokkanen as well as kapt Psykoisi, kers Jarger and alik Strat were awarded with Talkootyön Ansiomitali (TA) for participating.
